How long will it take for me to master a programming language like
C++, Java, and Python?

Mastery is a high level goal. Are you trying to learn enough to secure employment in an entry-level position?

Python is easiest to learn and widely used, but not commonly used in packaged products. Java is the most widely used, and designed as a more portable and easier to learn alternative to C++, which is also widely used. C++ is by far the hardest.

Do you have a particular industry in mind? The choice of language will follow the domain.

Software development is about much more than just programming: teamwork, engineering practices, and personal technical and business problem-solving ability. What is your background?

A great way to learn is to choose an open source project that uses a language of interest to you and contribute bug fixes to it. Proven ability on open source projects is a great way of building your resume.
